Anyway, speaking of pretty things, I've got some lovely capris to show you today in these photos, which were taken on an equally lovely spring day. We've had some surprisingly warm weather recently (actually, whenever the weather is warm here it's a surprise) and I even dared to get my legs out, just a little bit. The surprise of these capris is who made them because it was none other than that UK favourite known for their bargain swing dresses, Lindy Bop! And like their dresses, these are also very fairly priced and come in lots of different summery colourways. I had a tough time choosing a pair as the prints were all so fun, but decided that as I've already got slightly crazy, very tropical capris I'd go for something that was a bit more toned down that would go with more in my wardrobe.
I couldn't be more pleased with these. I thought they weren't going to be a good fit as I was, as always, between an 8 and 10 according to the size chart, but in fact, the 10 fits perfectly (my measurements are 27" waist, 35" hips - but if your waist is 28" you'd probably get into the 10). Another reason I love them? Belt loops!! I would put belt loops on everything if I could - it can make such a difference if the waist is slightly too big while the hips fit. They're a bit stretchy and have a concealed side zip (it's so concealed I bet you can't even see it in the third photo, but it's there!) and I think they're really good value for money, as I was pleasantly surprised at the quality. The fairly high waist is also pretty flattering - my short torso and I can't get along with super high waists (although do bear in mind I'm short, so what's high-rise for me will be lower on others).
Oh, and yes, I did buy another pair of Hasbeens. And no, I didn't follow my own advice about breaking them in in my eagerness to wear them with these capris. And yes, I got what I deserved on that front. And no, three pairs isn't enough (don't be silly).
